In this special case it is not Windows which *trains* me to
deactivate this "security warning".
It's Seamonkey. Because it tells me everytime when I
connect to my email-account (sending/receiving) the
same thing which I still know and which I have accepted
as "not a security problem" for me.
(I'm really more concerned about the problem that my email-login-pw
is sent unencrypted because I cannot activate [ ] Save Authentication
because the emailserver is not accepting this.)
By the way the complete way how all certificate things
are provided to the user (email, OpenGPG/Enigmail, otr etc)
is sooooo complete non-understandable to 99,9% of the user
that it is in my opinion completely useless because the user
cannot verify if a warning is important or not.
The user-interface for all this security things would need
a much more user-friendly design.
